PostSubject: Eldar vs Orcs   Sun Jul 04, 2010 5:27 pm

Hello here is my second battle report, Eldar vs Sneaky Orcs

Scenario, Occupy; (four different building objectives)

SETUP
Orcs (Mordoten) First to go, Eldar (me) second.

The sneaky orcs incorporated a sneaky boss and three kommandoz so I was looking at a close game, not sure if I could hold it but I'll die trying Just Kidding
I had an idea that I should try and not separate my forces too much so I could get maximum firepower at one point. Good idea but...


My exodites deployed far to the upper left, out of sight ... alone, a stupid mistake...

TURN 1
The Orcs realized that there are enemies ahead and make a true orcish "run for it!" My Eldar answers the charge with a moderate advance to cover and fires away but they only manage to stun one stupid orc so the future don't look so bright. (the exodites does a "heroic" move to kill two lonesome orcs but misses all shots)
Ors kill score: 0 Eldar: 0

TURN 2
The lonesome exodites faces a charge by two 'ard boys but one is going to stop short prolonging his life for a turn or two. The kommandoz move in charge range, threatening my core but it is a risky move. The eldar must have forgotten to pray to the dicelords as 9 shots and one psychic attack results in a stunned and a perils of the warp Shocked

Orcs kill score: 1 exodite Eldar: 0


The true sneaky boss checks line of sight Smile (we haven't really seattled for which squad to start so some beastmen cameos as kommandos)

TURN 3
The charges begin. In an attempt to show off the sneaky boss tries to make a diving charge at my warlock, something he now regrets Smile
Two kommandos close in while the third one gets up from being stunned. A little late the stupid orcs realized that they lacked closecombat weapons, hehe. The laugh is not long-lived as my warriors gets beaten by unarmed orcs Shocked The Oc boss tries to outmanoeuvre my force but a guardian moves out in the open and shoots the bastard down with a well placed critical.

Orc kill score: 1 Exodite; Eldar: 1 Orc boss Very Happy


dakka, dakka, dakka or whatever the sound the shuriken makes

TURN 4

The Orcs who is not already in close combat moves in to the middle. The Kommandos are now fighting bare knuckles with two aspirants and my leader and is winning. (Note to self: got to look up fist fights) Most of my "free" warriors lack targets due to my bad tactical decisions or to the bad dice rolls Sad

Orc kill score: 1 guardian, 1 Aspirant Eldar: 0


My Striking scorpion finishes of the sneaky boss who jumped deep into the ground.

TURN 5-8
With the eldar only rolling ones the battle report fades out...

CONCLUSION
The Eldar might have suffered a defeat but I have some suspicions about cheating that I will bring up to my defence if my opponent starts to brag too much LOL


Defeat again!! Have we learnt anything?


Shuriken is good but Toughness 4 is better or am I only bitter Very Happy

Need to check out the close combat rules regarding unarmed, we employed a -1 to strength.
Also why is the orcs unarmed? Even the sometimes whimpy elves have a knife... Shocked

Need to look closer into the psychic powers, right now the chances of perils and success is almost as big...

We tried out the postgame sequence this time and it looks good so far, got about 80 credits and no real injury so I'll invest in some catapults:rifle:

High initiative is very good in close combat unless you only roll ones...


We both had fun and it was a fairly quick game and I blame me loosing on bad dice so until next time Just Kidding

I love the buildings! They look like they could use some paint, but otherwise they are awesome. What material are they made of?

Thanks, they are made up by kapa boards and then covered with plaster(?, the cement like stuff you put on walls to cover up the holes etc.)
And yes, they eagerly waits to get their paint job done. The colour didn't last all the way and now the store have changed brand so I will have to do the big building all over Mad and some ladders and other small stuff need attaching, but soon... Very Happy

Me and one of my friends are just starting to build our own gaming board, but with kids and stuff it takes time, still need to paint some eldar, renegades, my bloodbowl team, the kitchen...

Other GREAT report styggisen! The pictures were fun... it took me a while to find the 'true' Sneaky Boss. Talk about hiding in plain sight! I think the reason that I could not see him was that I may have confused him with the Eye of Horus! Tell him to be VERY careful around my Catachan Squad... The Eye Pokers! Just Kidding

My comments...
* Shuriken is good but Toughness 4 is better or am I only bitter Very Happy
Dozer put it best... "In Death Squads Toughness is King." The Shuriken weapons are strong, but it is a 4+ to-wound. It balances out as other Squads start gaining better equipment (Saves, damage, etc), but the first games vs Orks tend to be hard!


* Need to check out the close combat rules regarding unarmed, we employed a -1 to strength.
We are starting to experiment with -S (as current rules) and +1 Save (as Combat Knife)... Da Bank & Dozer indicate that unarmed should be worse than fighting with a Combat Knife. We will see how it goes.


* Also why is the orcs unarmed? Even the sometimes whimpy elves have a knife...
The smallest knife an Ork would carry is a CHOPPA. Just Kidding You could buy a Club or a Combat Knife is you want. The GAME MECHANICAL reason is that the Orks are equipment independent... their Toughness 4 (remember, Toughness is king ) means that they can work unarmed just fine. In a campaign, after a few games, you have enough resources to get weapons (Choppas and Blastas) so it gives the player a sense of improvement. Wink


* Need to look closer into the psychic powers, right now the chances of perils and success is almost as big...
We are working on a Psyker overhaul. Please be patient.


* We tried out the postgame sequence this time and it looks good so far, got about 80 credits and no real injury so I'll invest in some catapults Rifle
Yes... that is the calculated average. The whole game is balanced (remember, we are designing long term) in earning ~80 credits. If you loose the game and 2 Recruits die, you could still recover without great loss. If you win the game, but still loose 2 Recruits, then you can recover and get you a little something-something. If you loose (DEAD) more than 2 Recruits, then is when you start running into trouble... if you loose several games in that fashion... then you will have a hard time to come from behind. It can be done... but it is hard. Then again... this is WAR!!!!


* High initiative is very good in close combat unless you only roll ones...
Careful! If you keep rolling so many Snake Eyes (double Roll 1 's) you may get a surprise visit from V.I.S.I.O.N.!!! You do NOT want them to go to your place and pay you a visit! Read more information about this organization on this post.





I'm very pleased you are liking our little skirmish experiment!
